A Sew Sisters Giveaway!

As a young quilter and, in particular, as a Canadian quilter, I am at a disadvantage when it comes to purchasing fabric that appeals to me (not that you would be able to tell from my giant, unreasonable stash). Despite living very close to a major metropolis (Toronto), I often struggle to find the fabric that speaks to me. I certainly have access to the online stores, however shipping from the United States is ridiculously expensive.

Enter Sew Sisters. They describe themselves as "...a Canadian quilt shop dedicated to all things quilting. For the past decade we have offered Canadian quilters great quality fabric, notions, books, kits and patterns, both in our store in Toronto and online. At Sew Sisters we believe you should buy fabric, not postage! So we offer terrific shipping rates on orders within Canada." 

I often buy larger cuts of fabric from Sew Sisters because their shipping rate is so much more reasonable than ordering from the U.S. (Free for purchases over $100! I may have an order coming with three backings and a bunch of Kona Silver for a future Swoon quilt). They also have a Kona Solids Fat Quarter of the Month Club which I subscribe to and post about here. It is the best way to dabble in solids!! They have so many Kona solids, including my precious Artichoke, and I know I can always find the colour I want. Check out their other selections as they have tons of print fabrics to drool over.

I also follow Sew Sisters on Facebook because they have free giveaways every week. It helps me dream about acquiring more fabric because I totally need more fabric. ;)

Why the Sew Sisters love today? Because they contacted me about offering a free giveaway here on my blog! How awesome is that? They are offering a bundle of 8 fat quarters of Dori by Mitzi Powers for Bernatex. I personally like the lime colour way and the teal and yellow colour way. My favourite is the Mod Flame (those bottom two prints). I can think of so many things I would do with it!

To enter to win all you need to do is leave me a comment! If you follow my blog, you can leave a second comment telling me so and earn a second entry! This giveaway is open to international participants. Entries begin today and close Sunday evening at 9:00p.m. (Entries are now closed) at which point Sew Sisters will send you your winnings! The winner will be selected using a random number generator.

  104. Really nice to discover your blog. The fabric bundle is wonderful. Just what we need to get us through this long, long cold season. Though it is technically spring, the weather didn't get the message. Sew Sisters is a godsend for me too. The closest shop is three hours away so lots of shopping is done online.
